Verifone and Pennies Reach Milestone of £6 Million Raised for Charities via Micro-Donations on Payment Devices

Verifone, the payments architect shaping ecosystems for in-person and online commerce experiences, and Pennies, the award-winning fintech charity working to grow and protect micro-donations, are delighted to announce they have facilitated more than £6 million in charitable donations since first partnering in 2011.

The partnership has generated donations for more than 95 charities by enabling consumers to make donations on Verifone payment devices at checkout through a simple prompt asking users if they would like to round up the purchase price to the nearest pound or make a donation of a set amount. The £6 million milestone was reached thanks to 23.5 million individual donations at Verifone merchants.

These small donations add up quickly and make a real difference in communities. One shining example is Verifone merchant Currys who raises enough funds through Pennies to help their charity partner, the Digital Poverty Alliance, provide families in need with a laptop – improving access to essential education, finance, and healthcare resources.

“Our enduring alliance with Pennies shows the impact we can make together, one small donation at a time,” said Bulent Ozayaz, EVP of Verifone EMEA. “These types of results align with our mission to innovate payment experiences that benefit merchants and enrich communities. We are honoured to foster positive change together with driven partners like Pennies.”

Pennies CEO, Alison Hutchinson CBE, added, “Verifone has been a long-standing partner of Pennies, making it easy for their retail partners to join the Pennies micro-donation movement. Congratulations to Verifone and everyone involved in unlocking £6 million of donations for many charities, showing the power of working together as a force for good.”
